Despite animal print being a big trend for A/W16 it genuinely wasn’t on my radar when I started to think about this years coat purchase. You see, I have two already (three if you include one a client gave me) so I didn’t think I needed another….. until I saw this Marks & Spencer Limited Edition number.
I had decided this years coat purchase would be a full-length one, as I think there’s something striking and stylish about them. Let’s face it, your coat is the first thing people are going to see during autumn/winter so why not make a statement.
I am aware that a full length faux-fur leopard print coat could end up a bit gangsters moll if styled the wrong way, so when wearing it I’ll be keeping the rest of my outfit minimal and understated – because I coat like this needs no introduction.
